Ophelia in 'Hamlet'

Lunch Hour

by John Mortimer

July 1980: Greenleaf Road Drama Group

Director: John Harvey

My very first 'real' part. I was fortunate to be directed by one of the most experienced actors in the group (John Harvey) and to play opposite another (Bob Hutt), who were both generous in their time and encouragement of a very inexperienced seventeen-year-old, in this one-act play. John can be seen in the background of some of these shots; sadly he passed away, aged just 59, in 1981. I wish I could have told him of some of my theatrical exploits across the following thirty years.
